Aussie Wine Month
Aussie Wine Month

We all know Australian wine is the absolute best and we have a heap of superheroes out there making the stuff exceptionally well. But how often do you reach for that trusty old label you’ve been drinking for years? There’s nothing wrong with having favourites, but don’t you think it’s time to branch out and discover something new?

Lucky for you, Wine Australia is bringing us the fifth annual Aussie Wine Month so we can celebrate all things wine, learn a thing or two, and and maybe drink a little vino in the AM with absolutely no feelings of guilt.

Here are our top five picks for the events you cannot miss at Aussie Wine Month in Queensland this May.

Game Of Rhones

Best. Event. Ever! A celebration of all the grape varieties from the Rhone Valley—think Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre and a bit of Viognier and Marsanne. There will be over 100 wines to taste and you get to decide which wine wins! Wines will be coming from Australia (of course) and New Zealand, plus there will be wines from ‘Beyond the Wall’ at the RHONE BAR #wineiscoming.

When: Sunday 29 May
Where: Light Space Brisbane

Wine & Cheese Experience At Woongooroo Estate

Woongooroo Estate know the way to our hearts. What way is that? Wine and cheese pairing of course. 90 mouth watering minutes of Woongooroo wines and local cheeses from Maleny and Kenilworth. Just think of the epic cheese board you’re going to absolutely nail next time you’re having friends over.

When: Wednesday—Sunday throughout May
Where: Woongooroo Estate

Grazing The Granite Belt

Head to the Granite Belt and slowly but surely graze your way through wine, cider and food. There will be local wine and regional food to get you through the day and, best of all, a shuttle bus so no need for a designated driver, huzzuh!

When: Saturday 21 May 9am—10pm
Where: The Granite Belt

Restaurant Lurleens Special Lunch Menu

Sit down and relax for lunch at Restaurant Lurleens. For the entire month of May you get to indulge in a two course set menu for only $50! Think fresh local prawns with avo, mango and lime mayo or gruyere cheese soufflé followed by melt in your mouth salmon or a giant Hereford angus eye fillet and you’re on the right track. All you need to do is choose the bottle of wine.

When: Throughout May
Where: Sirromet

Moffatdale Ridge Tuscan Feast

Start your day with a wine tasting, because it’s not every day you’re allowed wine before noon. Then take a seat and enjoy a massive Mediterranean feast with some delish Queensland wine and liqueurs. And of course, no Tuscan feast would be complete without a sing along with the live entertainment!

When: Sunday 22 May 10:45am—3pm
Where: Moffatdale Ridge
